There is another thread running about Welker's 'hit' on Talib & I have made a couple of posts there. I'd like to go a little deeper into this and explore the informal logical fallacies BB tries to use. As an aside, for a 'Genius' this is really very dumb and IMO very much beneath the position of a HC.
OK...BB uses 2 fallacies to try & make his point. First, he constructs a Straw Man, the size of which should require a Building Permit & the 2nd is the red herring...Both are attempts at distraction & deflection. If you have had no formal classes in Logic, it really doesn't matter...We all know & recognize BS when we hear it!
Now, on to my main Points...Deflection & Distraction: The Pats are not that good and that is a direct hit at BB...They have no depth on Offense or Defense, he knows it, and he also knows that he's responsible for Personnel decisions. Hence, his weak attempt to deflect his ineptness as GM is to attack a Player who didn't want to play for him anymore on a play that they also use.
BB is quoted " One of the worst plays I’ve seen. It was a deliberate play by the receiver to take out Aqib. No attempt to get open"
So, he knows what Welker's intent was?
"...I’ll let the league handle the discipline. It’s not for me to decide."
He makes the false assumption that discipline is required, but he also contradicts himself as he's already made a decision...For as smart as alot of people think BB is, he made some very stupid opening remarks in his presser.
